Recovery Day Ottawa

OTTAWA CITY HALL - SEPT | 24 | 2016 - HÔTEL DE VILLE

Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall, on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in making RDO2016 our best event ever! We are grateful to all our community partners, sponsors, speakers, performers, volunteers and members of our community who came out in support of recovery from addiction!

RDO2017 WILL BE HELD AT OTTAWA CITY HALL ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2017.

If you are interested in being involved in event operations and planning, please contact Festival Producer Gord Garner at ggarner@capsa.ca.


ABOUT RECOVERY DAY OTTAWA

Recovery Day Ottawa is an annual community event organized by CAPSA Ottawa  in the month of September. Our purpose is to help reduce the stigma surrounding addiction and raise awareness about recovery in our community.

We endeavour to engage the broader community by building partnerships with local, provincial and national organizations and raising awareness through the #RecoveryAlly campaign.

As part of our mandate, we reach out to community organizations who are involved in addiction treatment and addiction-related services. 

If you or your organization would like to get involved, please contact Gord Garner at ggarner@capsa.ca.
